WC - 22.11.21
This week in maths, we were introduced to fractions. We firstly worked hard on using a given method to convert fractions using our multiples knowledge. this lead on to us being able to convert fractions to assist placing them on a number line correctly. We understand how to apply our fraction knowledge to a diagram when using mixed numbers as well as knowing how to convert improper fractions to mixed numbers and vice versa.
This week we have consolidated our knowledge of the four operations using BODMAS. We now know what BODMAS stands for and are able to insert and remove brackets understanding the order to carry out the different operations.
Factors, Multiples and Prime Numbers
In Maths this week we have learnt how to find factors of a number using the method of factor trees. We practiced this and looked at how this links to multiples of a number, After that we consolidated our knowledge of times tables whilst finding prime numbers.
This week in our maths lessons, we revised how to use short division and then learned how to use long division to divide three and four digit numbers by 2-digit numbers.
In maths this week we have worked hard to use a formal written method to help us solve short and long multiplications. We were carefully when setting out out multiplications and consolidated our times tables knowledge.

In maths this week we have consolidated our knowledge of addition and subtraction using formal methods to ensure we are accurate. We paid particular attention to carrying when adding and borrowing when taking away. After that we used inverse operations to check our answers.
WC - 20.9.21
In maths this week we have looked at climates of different countries including negative numbers. We worked carefully to read temperatures from charts and then used these to find the difference.
WC - 13.9.21
In maths this week, we have been using place value to help us add and subtract from 1000 to 10 million. We will be able to use this skill when ordering and comparing numbers later on in the week as we now know the value of each digit in a number.
WC - 6.9.21
This week, as an introduction to our year 6 maths we have played maths multiplication games to challenge and refresh our minds. We worked together to battle our way to success.
